On the eve of his crucifixion it seemed like Jesus’ influence on the world had ended. On the contrary, it had just begun. In Who Is This Man?, a five-session video-based study, pastor and bestselling author John Ortberg reveals how Jesus and Christianity came to make an inescapable influence on our world, and how you as a Christian can make an inescapable influence too.
He is history's most familiar figure. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the man who won't go away. And yet … He did not brashly defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge superior in all future books. He did not start by telling his disciples, "Here are proofs of my divinity; affirm them and I'll accept you." In Who Is This Man?, a five-session video-based study, Ortberg shows how Jesus’ influence has swept over history, bringing his inspiration to the evolution of art, science, government, medicine, and education. And how his vision for us to lead lives of dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope continues to inspire and challenge humanity today. The Who Is This Man? DVD is designed for use with the Who Is This Man? Participant’s Guide (sold separately).
